Today marks the end of my highest volume week of Ironman training.
In the last 7 days, I have 18.5 hours of training (not including the prep, post stretches, etc), including
180 miles of biking (including 100 today - woohoo!)
40 miles running (with a long of 20)
5700 yards swimming (with a long of 4200)
and an hour of strength/core.
My typical week has included about 10 hours of training, so I'm essentially wiped out at this point and ready to taper (and sleep!)!
So I get a text message from IronJenny today saying that TriNick has a friend who says that Lake Zurich, in which I'll be swimming 2.4 miles in a couple of weeks, is right now 50 degrees F.
Jenny, are you effing with me? Please please tell me you are effing with me!!
